Adorable setting- an old wooden building with a lovely garden all around it, but the food was overpriced and disappointing. The soups were really good- a cold raspberry/peach cream and a hot artichoke/cream/wine soup. The dessert was also pretty good- a liquor soaked peach and cream and raspberry concoction. But the appetizer- a cold fatty duck breast- was nothing special, the salad had a greasy dressing which did not compliment it at all, and the beef wellington had an undercooked pastry not to mention the meat was too rare- medium rare does not mean bloody. The food was really pretentious without the quality to back it up
I have been going to this restaurant for 21 years, my parents and grandparents for even longer. I look forward to taking my fiancé after we are married to Fawn Brook Inn. It is a wonderful place for couples and friends alike.
The course begins by walking through a stoned walkway flanked with beautiful flowers and dive buzzing hummingbirds (which you are most welcome to explore and enjoy as you wait for your entrée). When you enter the restaurant, a small, romantic atmosphere greets you. In the winter, the fireplace is crackling with warmth. With a friendly welcome from the waitress, who has been working at Fawn Brook Inn for several years, she takes your drink order as you decide on an entrée. After making the difficult decision between duck, elk, steak au pouvre, rouladin and several other entrees, you decide between a fruity cold soup or a rich hot soup. Warm, fresh baked bread precedes the soup, and the fresh, green salad with a special house dressing and blue cheese follows the soup. If you had ordered any one of the appetizers (escargot to pâté), you would have been served before the soup. Following the salad is the main course, which regardless of your order, you won’t be disappointed. The plate is full of the meal, and it is so delicious you have to eat every bite. Following full bellies, you must order dessert.
I have very much enjoyed each experience at Fawn Brook Inn. There is one waitress who has been working their for several years, who will always remember a face and never forget to check up on you. The owners are wonderful, a husband and wife. The husband is the chef, and the wife will check up on you with a sweet smile. The duck with dried cherries and the steak au pouvre prepared table-side with peppercorns, are two of my favorite dishes, but I have liked everything I tried. When you order the special, you get the special appetizer and dessert as well. This year it was Salmon Trout (which is a trout that lives above 10,000 feet that has the color of salmon) for the entrée, pheasant tureen (which I cannot figure out how to spell, I apologize), and for dessert, a delicious puff pastry filled with fruits and cream.
The items are fairly pricey, be prepared to spend $100 for a couple (which there is also the option of a couple’s dinner), but it is most worth it. Unlike many pricey restaurants where they serve you a tiny portion of food for $40, Fawn Brook Inn breaks that mold. An excellent wine and drink list, including pear brandy or even coffee with huge crystals of sugar (that as a child, okay, even now, I love to crunch on) will be a delightful end to a magnificent meal. They are now serving lunch on Saturday and Sundays, with a slightly different menu.
I do not recommend Fawn Brook Inn for young children, unless they are well behaved. The chef (who is also the owner), will be most happy to provide a children’s plate or just a plate to share with the parents. I DO RECOMMEND RESERVATIONS.
The chef is creating a cookbook, and you will want to buy one after you have your first bite.
You will not be disappointed and will come back years to come.
